Matt Dunbar, SIMULIA, talking on parallelism...

December 13, 2009

Final talk this year - coming up - on my favorite subject (parallel programming)...
It will be live December 15 (with an opportunity to ask questions), and available "on demand" afterwards... "Real World Parallelism" talk series.
How to Use Intel® Parallel Studio to Streamline Code Development in a Multicore Environment - presented by SIMULIA
Resolve elusive, costly multithreading errors quickly and efficiently with Intel® Parallel Studio. While many coding problems that lead to bugs in software applications are typically straightforward logic errors, errors in managing memory and in multithreading code can sometimes take weeks to months to diagnose and fix. Matt Dunbar explores how and why taking advantage of multicore processors through multithreaded code is critical for compute-intensive applications. While spotlighting his work on SIMULIA's Abaqus finite element solver, Dunbar addresses the need for multicore execution and shares his experiences using Intel Parallel Studio to streamline code development in a multicore environment.
Speaker: Matt Dunbar, Director for Performance Technology, SIMULIA
Matt Dunbar is the director for performance technology at SIMULIA. Since joining the company in 1993, he has worked on parallelization of the Abaqus suite of products, initially for shared memory architectures and more recently for distributed memory architectures. Dunbar has also been intimately involved in selecting both the hardware and software tools used in the development of the Abaqus product line.
